    He plays the sax and loves it!
    He wants to play in the jazz band too.

    For those of you who don't know, getting into the MDB is very competitive! 600 kids tryout and 400 make it, they have to tryout every year.

    Congrats to your son! I marched during the Shula years and it wasn't a whole lot of fun, honestly. People have lots of opinions about the MDB, but Dr. O and Mr. Coleman do a great job. It's hard for a band to have an impact in a stadium as large as BDS is now, but MDB does a great job of it. I hope your son enjoys the second golden age of Alabama football and the perks that come with MDB membership!

    Congrats to your son.

    Side note: Shouldn't they be the 15 million dollar band by now?

    I'm sure they treat their band members better than the cow college just to the southeast. My step daughter marched in awbern's band and really worked hard but got treated poorly IMO. It seemed to me much more practice time than football but no glory. The football team flies to games and stay in Hotels, the band rides the bus and arrives at game time and leaves right after. She loved it and that's what is important, but I thought she was really taken advantage of. No scholarship, she was a walk on and knew what she was getting into.
